Dueling weird dreams

This morning the first thing DH says to me is: I had the weirdest dream.

I held up a hand and replied: Wait, before you say anything, can your dream top this?

I had a dream about watching a dancing cello ensemble [yes, two dozen men dancing and playing cellos] led by Edward James Olmos [Commander Adama].

As if that wasn't odd enough, afterward, I went to a restaurant where the bathroom was accessed through the oven. When they closed the kitchen down, they closed the bathroom down too. The mean waitress refused to let me order pastrami on rye [which I don't even like] but I was mad that I couldn't have it.

DH was silent for a bit, then he launched into his tale of joining the presidental election campaign in Washington and bringing the dog with us. At one point he took Saber to Burger King and bought him four whoppers.

I said: That's not your dream. That's the dog's dream. You must be channeling him.

Nevertheless, I still win.

I get predictive dreams but have no control over them so hence no lottery win but it freaks me out when they come true.

I've had those too - nothing fantastic [I dream that OTHER people win the lottery] - last week I dreamed about making hot dogs and this week, lo and behold, I made hot dogs for dinner one night. LOL - pretty freaky. ;)

I have odd dreams that are as fragile as a spider's web and when I try harder to hold them, they wisk away. One dream, i shan't share, did leave me blue earlier this week. But sometimes, dreams are great. As a child i had two recurring ones. One with a carousel and another about my dad getting hurt.

I have very weird, vivid dreams. Some dreams I have, happen. Then there are the dreams of me sitting in a straight back chair in the funeral home with all my dead relatives sitting up in their caskets and talking to me. I hate that one!

Very interesting blog topic! :)

um. I had a dream when I was very young that my dad was taken away by storm troopers. This was before star wars came out. It was awful.

I also have recurring dreams about a house..which, once I step in it...I recognise it. It was once a B&B and is a warren of rooms which I totally get lost in. And some are haunted.

I like to wake up from those ones.

I have recurring dreams too - about taking long drives to visit relatives or oddly enough, being at the mall.

I'm famous for bathroom dreams - I'm always looking for the bathroom in my dreams and it's usually broken, missing a door, impossible to get into...obviously I have potty issues.

Leigh, I have dreams that leave me blue sometimes, or mad at someone I had a fight with in a dream but not in RL. I hate those.

Let's see. I once dreamed that I died and I still had to go to work, but since I was a ghost I couldn't do any hands on stuff with my patients. Instead I simply charted what other people did.

I dreamed a giant anaconda was crawling though our house and ate my cousin.

The night before I had my tonsils out when I was 26, I dreamed that you weren't unconscious for the operation. That they got you drunk, tied you to a chair, and removed them with an ice cream scoop. My husband told the anesthesiologist, my ENT's best friend. He reassured me that he would knock me out. I heard him and the ENT snickering a few minutes later and the ENT said it is really more like a melon baller.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Oh boy, Lia. I don't think I would have been able to go through with the operation after that one. Yikes. I'll never look at melon balls the same again.

Jen said...

Your dream definitely wins, but I think it's cool that your dh was able to dream the dog's dream!

Says Jen who has been sleepwalking every single night for more than three weeks....((sigh))
